Electronic Arts is quite surprised that its recently launched Medal of Honor: Warfighter hasn’t received positive reviews, as the company is convinced that the first-person shooter has a high level of quality.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter came out last week and delivered a hyper-realistic shooter experience that based its single-player campaign, its multiplayer mode, as well as its many mechanics on real-life Tier 1 Operators.
As such, the company, together with developer Danger Close, expected the game to perform well both in terms of sales and critical reception.
While it did sell quite well, climbing to the top of the UK charts
in its first week, its actual reviews weren’t that impressive, with the game now boasting an extremely low score of around 50 on review aggregator Metacritic.
EA is quite shocked of this reception, saying that the game "fell below our expectations."
"We take product quality very seriously," EA’s Frank Gibeau added, via CVG
. "We are not happy with how Warfighter has been received."
We’ll publish our own review tomorrow, so look forward to hearing what we think of the new first-person shooter soon.
